Shabby vintage card!


Today I want to show you...a card without a stamped image! Whoho! Scary stuff I know!
I have been thinking about doing a vintage card with this cute image for soooo looooong! I finally took the step! It is so nice to step outside the box now and then! Even if it only is for a short while. :)

Happy Birthday! (Grattis!)


I am in a Saturated Canary -mood right now! Could be because I recieved the voucher from the kind and generous Regan and picked out so beautiful images, I can´t keep my hands off them! :)
This is one of the girls that is named glindafix, if i have read it right. A little strange name, but it might have a story behind that name that I don´t know off. :)
She is colored with promarkers, as usual.

Are you afraid of spiders?


Actually I am a little, not very much, but at least so I have to bite my tounge when I am among children and one of the bigger comes into the classroom. Luckily I am a good actress so the pupils I had for 3 years, last time, never understood how afraid I really am. :) hihi

Anyway, this card is a poor tangled cute girl and who would like to be tangled when this spider comes her way? This was the darkest I could come up too right now. Normally I can dig into myself and find some scared moments or feelings, but couldn´t find much darkness within me this time. :) At least I hope my card is a little tiny bit scary anyway! :)

The stamp is from Make it Crafty. Flowers is from Prima, the darkest blue paper is from Maja design.

I have combined two challenges. The first one is Lisa from b.creative who have a dark challenge. :)
And then it is Lou from Passion for ProMarkers who have this interesting challenge "monochrome image with unusual hair colour". :) Something to bit into!

Masking Magnolia


First time I did a round card! I think! :)
And I masked 2 of the stamps I bought in Borås, Flip Flop Tilda and shabby chic fence. The colors I have chosen from a picture at Magnolia-licious. And my favorite stamp from Magnolia is flip flop tilda, she is sooo cute!

Saturated Canary!


Oh I have been struggling! First I did the coloring and then I was to sit down and create the card. And nothing happened!! Well, I let it be over night and today It was easier, not easy, but I finished it. :)
I guess we all go down in dips, you agree?
They have a lovely picture over at Saturated Canary who we should be inspired by. First when I looked at it,  I just saw the flowers and the grass, therefore my green and pink/purple coloring. And then I was thinking, the DT had so much blue, where did they get that from? A closer look at the picture, and it have a light blue bike, mysteri solved! :)

Stampactual Sunday Challenge have and easy one, for the girls! :)
And Simon Says Stamp has these cute animals, animals antics. I am not sure what antics means, but I saw another girl/ladie who used this stamp for this challenge, but be a good sign. :)

How I could miss the bike but still see the flowers? I have no idea!!

Till Cri-kee (to Cri-kee, post in swedish)


(if your name is Regan, please don´t scroll down and look at the picture!!) :)

Tack för din kommentar! Jag älskar kommentarer som får mig att tänka! (och jag älskar alla snälla underbara kommentarer jag får, ni är bäst!!) Jag har ju inte gått något kurs, är självlärd för jag tycker det är så kul. Men jag tycker ändå att man ska testa sig fram vad som passar just dig (och i mitt fall mig! :)) eum, jag är ju bildlärare också, men bara upp till år 7, så jag har ju ingen "behörighet" för att visa er någonting, mina vänner, egentligen! Inte mycket kunskap om promarkers som ingår i läroplanen...borde det ju finnas!!! :) Men jag vill ändå visa min senaste färgläggning för att visa att när jag vill ha hårstrån, som jag ville nu, så är det omöjligt att gå från mörkt till ljust. Kanske jag får någon arg instruktör från promarkers på mig nu (hoppas inte det!) men det här hade i alla fall inte jag kunnat måla från mörkt till ljust. Ursäkta att bilden är något suddig. (jag ska snart åka iväg på ett möte, ville bara posta detta som jag hade på hjärtat)
Och vad jag vill visa är hårstråna. Inte så lätt från mörkt till ljust. Lättare gjort från ljust till mörkt. OBS! Detta gäller alltså håret! Ibland använder jag mig av mörkare till ljusare också..

Kram Sandra

And here she is full colored and on a card!


I had to finish the mermaid Cordelia, wasn´t planing to do that, but it would be fun since I used her for a smal tutorial (and Sara gave me the idea). But since the hair was colored so fast, I gave the rest of her some more proper treatment! I colored her face more carefully than I normally do. I think face will be my next project. It should really have been my first since it is so important, but I have waited until now. :)
I couldn´t find any challenges to enter her in, until I found a "anything goes". It seams like a fun site, Make it Monday, since we comment on each others cards! Fun idea!

And the sun was actually out today! Whoho!
So I took one picture in direct sunlight. The colors become true, if you understand what I mean.

Make it Monday: #102 anything goes

Till Cattie! -igen! :)


Och det här inlägget är på svenska för det är tilläggnat till Cattie! Ibland kan man behöva lite inspiration, man kan behöva en kompis att färglägga med! Och bor man långt borta så kan man ju videofilma! Vilket inte var så lätt som jag trodde! Även på denna video så pratar jag lite lågt ibland. Men man ser min pennspets! Alltid något! :)

Jag visar bara GRUNDERNA, inget finlir, och är inte så noga som jag vanligtvis är! Men det är ju alltid skoj att färglägga!

Blont hår med promarkers!

Den tar bara 7 minuter och 43 sekunder!

Förra inspelningsbilden:
Med lite mörkare hår. Det tog över 13 minuter att måla denna.

Ha det så skoj med färgläggningen!
Ska bli kul att se vad du målar!!

Isn´t she lovely?!

Hi my sweet friends!

I am in a "practising hair mood" and after coloring Sara´s lovely girl at least 8 times, I feel bold enough to try out Rapunzel from Make it Crafty. It took me a whole night to color this beauty, but she was worth it!
I have used both my favorite die cuts (the corners) and punches (the "leaves"). To qualify to be in Whoopsi Daisy Challenge. :)

First I was going to have this to a weeding card, but then I realized something was missing... the groom... :)
